Exposing wet hair to high temperatures can create gas bubbles within the hair shaft, leading to brittle, dry hairs in a disorder known as bubble hair abnormality. We present a case of a 61-year-old woman who presented for hair breakage over her crown. She regularly dried her damp hair with a blow dryer. Dermoscopy revealed multiple bubbles within the hair shaft, and diagnosis of bubble hair abnormality was confirmed by light microscopy. Our unusual case highlights the ease of acquisition of this abnormality by means of a common hair dryer, and the utility of dermoscopy to make a fast and accurate diagnosis within the office...

<p>Seborrheic keratosis (SK) is a benign epidermal keratinocytic tumor that is extremely common, particularly in individuals over the age of 50. Most individuals with SK will have more than one lesion and the presence of over 10 lesions in the same person is not uncommon. Although the clinical morphology of most SK with their stuck-on, symmetric, keratotic, and waxy appearance makes them easy to identify, many manifest a morphology resembling melanoma or squamous cell carcinoma. One can argue that such cases will ultimately not prove to be problematic since a simple biopsy will easily reveal their benign nature and eliminate any concerns...

BACKGROUND: Teledermoscopy is a promising modern technique to complement or to substitute dermatologic examination. OBJECTIVE: In this pilot study, we compared the outcomes of teledermoscopic consultations with clinical examinations and histologic results. METHODS: Conventional and dermatoscopic photos of single lesions were taken in 26 patients using a mobile phone and an attached handyscope optical system. Five resident physicians performed a clinical examination including dermoscopy while the teledermatologic and teledermoscopic photos were assessed by an experienced dermatologist...

Dermoscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that facilitates the visualization of surface and subsurface structures of the skin. It has been proven to be an essential tool in the diagnosis of both malignant and benign cutaneous lesions. In this article, we review some of the most recent and noteworthy advances in dermoscopy. In addition, we discuss Reflectance Confocal Microscopy (RCM) and Optical Coherence Topography (OCT), two non-invasive imaging devices that may be used alongside dermoscopy to improve diagnostic accuracy...

REVIEW
Frances M Walocko, Trilokraj Tejasvi
Teledermatology has drawn interest in the dermatologic community, because it allows for earlier detection of skin cancer in patients with poor access to health care. Using a combination of dermoscopy and digital photography, teledermatology has demonstrated acceptable concordance with face-to-face clinical diagnoses in multiple settings for pigmented skin lesions. Additional studies on using teledermatology to assess nonpigmented skin lesions are needed. Future advances in mobile teledermatology may help make this technology more widespread and affordable...

Identifying new or changing melanocytic lesions, particularly in patients with numerous or atypical nevi, can be challenging. Total-body photography and sequential digital dermoscopy imaging, together known as digital follow-up, are 2 prominent forms of noninvasive imaging technology used in mole mapping that have been found to improve diagnostic accuracy, detect earlier-stage melanomas, and reduce costs. Digital follow-up, in combination with direct-to-consumer applications and teledermatology, is already revolutionizing the ways in which physicians and patients participate in melanoma surveillance and will likely continue to enhance early detection efforts...

Dermoscopy increases the sensitivity for skin cancer detection, decreases the number of benign lesions biopsied for each malignant diagnosis, and enables the diagnosis of thinner melanomas compared with naked eye examination. Multiple meta-analyses have identified that dermoscopy improves the diagnostic accuracy for melanoma when compared with naked eye examination. In addition, studies have established that dermoscopy can aid in the detection of keratinocyte carcinomas. Dermoscopy triage algorithms have been developed to help novices decide when a biopsy or a referral is most appropriate...

BACKGROUND: Primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (PCBCLs) are frequently misdiagnosed, and a biopsy is needed to attain the correct diagnosis. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the dermoscopic features of PCBCL. METHODS: In this retrospective observational study, we analysed the pathology reports of 172 newly diagnosed PCBCL for the initial clinical differential diagnosis. The dermoscopic images of 58 PCBCL were evaluated for dermoscopic features. Two dermoscopy experts, who were blinded to the diagnosis and the study objective, evaluated images from 17 cases for a dermoscopic differential diagnosis...

Courtney M Johnson, Mariya Miteva
Trichoscopy is a noninvasive visualization tool used to more accurately diagnose hair and scalp disorders. Alopecia areata (AA) in the patient of African descent can mimic the early signs of central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA), especially if the initial presentation of hair loss occurs on the central scalp. Two African-American women presented with singular round-ovoid patches of decreased hair loss on the central scalp. Given the clinical presentation, CCCA was the working diagnosis. However, using dermoscopy, the patients were found to have exclamation hairs and short broken hairs on a background of honeycomb-like pigmented network and regular pinpoint white dots consistent with AA...

Tinea capitis is the most common pediatric superficial dermatophyte infection. The causative species vary, as for instance, Microsporum canis predominates in Europe, while Trichophyton tonsurans predominates in North America. Tinea capitis does not respond well to topical therapy alone, thus oral therapy is requisite. The drug of choice is griseofulvin; however in some countries, it is no longer available. Fungal culture should be requested in the persistent, scalp lesion and trichoscopy can put forward a speedy diagnosis by its characteristic findings...

BACKGROUND: The detection of melanoma poses a substantial challenge, particularly for primary care providers (PCPs) who may have limited training in discriminating between suspicious and benign melanocytic lesions. The noninvasive optical transfer diagnosis (OTD) method was designed to be used by PCPs in their decision-making process. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this clinical study was to assess the potential of the OTD method by developing, training, and validating an OTD indication algorithm for automated discrimination between benign melanocytic lesions and malignant lesions, based on a set of 712 lesions...
